TECHNOLOGY ROADMAP SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS
CalHEAT has identified 66 action items in the Research and Market Transformation Roadmap to help mitigate emissions or improve efficiency. These clearly defined, achievable “stepping stones” provide a pathway through successive stages of technology development and adoption across multiple technology categories and vehicle platforms. The action items focus on 13 technology strategies grouped broadly under electrification and engine or driveline efficiency. CalHEAT collaborated in the development of this Roadmap with the State’s Air Resources Board, Energy Commission, Air Quality Management Districts, the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and nationally-recognized medium- and heavy-duty truck associations, manufacturers, and experts. With implementation of the 66 action items, the Research and Market Transformation Roadmap projects a reduction in 2050 of more than 40 Million Metric Tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions per year compared to existing technology, referred to hereafter as “Business as Usual.” Truck-related petroleum use is projected to decrease from 3.6 billion gallons per year in 2012 to 1.5 billion gallons per year in 2050, a decrease of 58%, or more than 2 billion gallons per year, compared to Business as Usual. Nitrous oxide emissions are projected to decrease by 73% from 249,000 metric tons/year in 2012 to 66,000 metric tons/year by 2050, accomplished through increases in mileage per gallon and from adoption of NOx reduction technologies.
